This small, homey restaurant is a great place to go for Italian food. The servers are very friendly and helpful but know how to let you eat in peace. I don't like strong tastes so the menu is limited for someone like me but it is authentic and I can always find something I like.

My husband and I stumbled upon this while our daughter was at a cooking class and what a great find it is. The ambience is very quaint and the food quality was great. We will definitely come back.

This was my second visit; this time I went with a girlfriend Our waitress was warm and efficient. The food was yummy and the setting summer sun made a lovely addition to our experience in this friendly restaurant. They serve REALLY EXCELLENT gluten free pasta -- which supported my friend's needs perfectly.

I've always given this restaurant a 4 or 5 star rating but today, Labor Day, we had a server who didn't know how to open or pour a bottle of wine. Plus he hovered over the 4 of us all through lunch like flies over a cow pattie. Sweet guy but he desperately needs TRAINING. The food was fine and... More

La Bottega always has interesting dishes of the day that are excellent. You can count on the quality of their food every time. This is good for a date or an office lunch.

I found this place on trip advisor and the reviews were helpful. I wanted to make sure and add a hint. This is becoming a very popular place and seating is limited. They have some outdoor seating when the weather is nice and this saved me when I arrived late and agreed to sit outside. Both times I have been... More

My absolute favorite restaurant in Vancouver. Great service, great beer and wine, awesome food. I am vegetarian and have enjoyed several dishes. My husband has had duck and tuna and both have been incredible. Dessert is great as well. A must try if in Vancouver.

After looking at the dressed down photos, I almost couldn't get my husband to go, but we love the casual, quaint atmosphere. Staff is top notch. Phenomenal wine list. Great take aways for picnics. And the food is highly recommended by my 100% Italian, NY born and raised husband.

Very good Italian inspired cuisine Cood ingredients Their appetizers, especially the shrimp one, are above the norm. The pastas are good, as are the fish main courses. They do have an excellent "Barolo Chinato" as a digestif. One of the best places to eat in Vancouver WA.

Thank Icegabe
